|Dead foliage was cut back to allow the new growth to push up.|
|Three wheelbarrows full of branches were carted away.|
And afterward - still large and rambly looking which I like, but at least you can walk up to the door now.
As you can see, despite the snow storm, the temperatures returned to more spring like conditions which allowed for a bit of gardening. Including our favourite yearly spring activity of planting trees.
A few spruce babies were dug up from around the big trees and transplanted to the hedgerow where we are attempting to reestablish a tree line. Unfortunately my outside time was cut severely short as we had yet another SNOW STORM. 15 cm ( or 6 inches) of the white stuff came down with blowing wind. What a tease. Luckily my sweet husband brought me an Easter treat so I have at least one bloom to share.
Let's not mention to him that lilies aren't my most favourite flower shall we? He saw a clip on the news recently saying how lilies were the perfect Easter gift because they can be replanted into the garden and he was so proud when he gave me this and told me that tidbit. I can put up with the smell because he's such a darling. And they certainly spruce up the inside of the house which will be nice for Mr. Inspector when he shows up.
